Re: “Welch Won't Commit to Backing Pelosi for U.S. House Speaker

I hope he backs Barbara Lee who has said similar things and is gaining support among the more engaged. She has had feet in both camps in the Democratic Party and she's aware of the massive distrust many young people have of Pelosi and the current leaders in the Democratic house. Fresh blood is good when the old ways are broken. The last few years have shown us exactly how broken Congress is.

Thank goodness Ryan and Nunes are gone!

Re: “Women in Nude Photo Shoot Say Online Backlash Proves Their Point

Just, If you don't understand this photo shoot, maybe you should try talking to some women about the intersectionality of misogyny, politics, and merchandising of the female form, rather than commenting as insanely as you have done here.

Re: “Uprooted: Burlington Farmers Market Seeks a New Home

Miro Weinberger doesn't care much for civic engagement, does he? He didn't want to hear from us on the F-35s and he doesn't want to hear from us on the park. This tinpot dictator has got to go or this town will be paved over and our historic buildings pulled down to benefit contractors. Hey, Mr Mayor, where's our boondoggle new mall?

Re: “Vandal Defaces Controversial Burlington Parade Mural

The mural is not only racist, it's ugly. Pseudo-Norman Rockwell, celebrating the white discovery of the lake. It is as bad as celebrating Columbus Day, but I guess I shouldn't be surprised that this analogy is lost on our politicians. I suppose Del Pozo would prosecute those protesters who toppled the Confederate statues too.

Re: “Walters: Final Debate Between Scott and Hallquist a Lively, Testy Affair

Hey, ConcernedVter, did you notice how Scott ambushed the legislature with his teacher healthcare crap? Did you notice how he said "My way or the highway?" And how in his two terms he's forced the legislature to come back because he vetoes triparty budgets? He doesn't lead, he demands, plays hardball and then caves. And costs us, the taxpayers, for added sessions. He was in the legislature how long? He knows how it works, but his puppetmaster Jason Gibbs doesn't like playing by the rules, so Scott doesn't do it. Says a lot for his leadership skills. Amirite?

Re: “Running Unopposed, State's Attorney Sarah George Campaigns for Reform

I've had my disagreements with Knodell and Del Pozo before. I have to say that I do in this case too. What I'm wondering, Seven Days, is why such a definitive article was not produced earlier. Early voting has been going on for a month. Those of us who voted in the past few days might have checked off on George, rather than leaving the ballot blank.

Re: “About Turner: Republicans Bet Big on Lieutenant Governor Race

VPR lost me a while ago over personnel issues and parroting of the national line. I am now even more appalled by their behavior and will ask them to stop using comments I made years ago to support the station. They give journalism a very bad name with their decision to treat an abuse sufferer in this way.
